Yes, this is how you pronounce the white grape varietal of Albariño, a widely grown grape in north-eastern Spain. Now there are 27ha of plantings here in Aotearoa. The New Zealand version of this wine is light to medium-bodied with lots of minerality and often a “salty” crispness, making it great with seafood. Typically $15-$35 from these wineries: Astrolabe, Neudorf, Coopers Creek, Waimea, Villa Maria,
Rod McDonald Wines, Babich and Aronui.
